Rest Easy into the New Year

It's almost over.  You've been wondering for months about it, haven't you?  Wondering when someone would get caught?  When they would be held accountable for their heinous deeds?

I wrote about this back in September when some Canadian thieves decided to steal millions of dollars worth of maple syrup.  As any good blogger who occasionally follows stories through to their completion, I am happy to report that three people have been arrested for the crimes.

Most importantly, two-thirds of the stolen sticky supply was recovered.  What that means is the maple syrup prices will hopefully avoid any ill effects of the fiscal cliff.  We are happy to report the Canadian authorities have just about laid this case to rest for the new year.  You kind of feel bad for the thieves.  They just about got away with it before the world ended - just a few more hours.

I'm taking some time off next week and am not sure I'll be posting much.  I am thankful that people keep reading this site, which justifies continuing to run it.  Happy holidays!  Merry Christmas! Happy (belated) Hanukkah!  Happy New Year!
